I love Pears, but rarely buy them. They are up there amongst my very favourite things to eat.
We have just two youngish trees; a Doyenne de Comice, and a Conference. Above are from the latter.
Conference is an especially good variety because it tells you when it's ripe; it turns yellow, and drops.
The old family joke.
Sprog: Daddy, may I have a pear?
Cro: A pair of what?
Sprog: No, an eating Pear.
Cro: Oh you mean a quarter of a pair of Pears! Yes of course you may.
Well we found it funny, and we still do!
